To provide technical expertise in the field of Public Investment Management to the Public Investment Management Unit within the Ministry of Finance.
To enhance overall quality of the Public Investment Management process at the Ministry of Finance.
UNDP Serbia has been supporting the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia since 2013 to build capacities for an effective coordination and management, economic reforms, accession negotiations as well as for fulfilling the economic and political criteria for European Union (EU) membership. “Support to strengthening technical capacity and institutional development of the Ministry of Finance and coordination in the field of economic governance” project implementation started in 2018. To fulfil the economic and political criteria for EU membership, as well as to create a stable economic and monetary environment, the Republic of Serbia has to ensure further strengthening of administrative capacities and stability of its institutions. The main project activities are focused on the provision of capacity building support and analysis of the current economic environment, as well as the support in the implementation of Public Investment Management Strategy.
After three years into its implementation, the PIM framework is still evolving. Serbia has recently embarked on reforming its Public Investment Management (PIM) system. A new PIM Decree was passed in 2019 with detailed technical guidance for all segments of the PIM lifecycle. An information system (PIMIS) is currently being developed to support business processes at different stages and levels of the framework. The Ministry of Finance (MoF) strives to increase PIM efficiency further and address some of the issues that became obvious only after the introduction of the Decree. Some of those issues include limited visibility of the PIM framework; a need to strengthen the capacities of the unit in charge of managing it (part of the Fiscal Risk Monitoring Department at the MoF); fragmentation of the overall PIM system; limited scope of the Decree due to several exemptions etc. Additionally, the MoF has to address various procedural issues to allow PIM's further development.
Given the aforementioned, the Ministry of Finance has commenced the implementation of the carrying activities devised in related public policy documents such as the Public Investment methodology and needs external support in its fulfilment.
In line with these requirements, the UNDP in Serbia is seeking a qualified and experienced local expert to provide technical expertise in the field of public investment management to the Ministry of Finance and its Public Investment Management Unit.
